Find of the Month: Racinne Skincare

Ironically enough, the season where we are photographed perhaps more than any other (that would be the holidays) is also one of the seasons where it can be tough to look and feel your best. Holiday treat temptations, a hustle and bustle schedule, and harsh winter weather can wear down even the hardiest of Canadians. The good news is, you can employ secret weapons like this month’s big find – Racinne Skincare, an advanced Korean biotechnology skincare company – to help yourself along. Today I’ve rounded up some details on some of their gift sets and latest innovations, so you can discover some amazing skincare gift ideas (or items to throw on your own wish list).

Racinne Hydra
Hydra Perfection Collection – From $20.99 – $43.99
All of Racinne’s products use their intriguing ‘Callus Cultivation Technology’, wherein they extract plant callus cells – aka the cells that repair a plant’s wounds – and infuse their products with them to boost skin elasticity, re-energize skin cells, retain moisture, and ultimately give you a healthy glow. One particularly cool feature of using plant callus, as opposed to traditional plant extracts, is they are pesticide-free (something you may not think about when using some plant-derived beauty brands). As you can imagine, different plant callus cells do different things. Their Hydra Perfection line uses the ultra-moisturizing benefits of grape callus cells, which are loaded with antioxidants and have been shown to help repair damaged skin. It’s ideal for those living in particularly dry or windy climates, or for those with sensitive skin, as it works to gently emulsify the skin while still maintaining a healthy level of moisture. You can try the products out for as little as $6.99 for a sampler set (which also makes a fab stocking stuffer), then graduate up to the full range of cleansing, toning, exfoliating, and moisturizing products – including their awesome Hydra Perfection Gift Set which offers amazing value at $100.

LadyI_with_cleansing_foam__82563.1405753167.1280.1280Lady-i Massaging Rejuvenation System – $74.99
A lot has been made lately about having the ability to do a good, deep clean and exfoliation on your skin at home – something a washcloth or your hands alone can’t really accomplish. An electronic facial brush gets into your pores in a way that’ll leave you feeling (and looking) rejuvenated, without irritating or over-exfoliating your skin. Racinne’s new Lady-i brush system comes with four different attachments to suit whatever it is you’re scrubbing up from head-to-toe – from a tough pumice stone for those dry patches on your feet to a gentle facial sponge for when you simply want to clean away the day’s dirt and makeup. Not only will you help slough off dead skin cells, you’ll also leave your skin refreshed and better able to absorb whatever Racinne products you’re then applying. Designed to work with the brand’s Ultimate Hydra Perfection Gentle Cleansing Foam, you can currently buy this innovative, skin-savvy machine in a special kit that includes a full-size bottle of the foam.

Racinne Youth Power
Youth Power Collection – From $18
If fighting off aging and restoring that healthy, vibrant glow is your key focus, than you best be looking into Racinne’s awesome Youth Power Collection. This time the callus cell technology that’s been tapped into comes from the ginseng plant. Research has brought light to panax ginseng root’s power to boost type 1 collagen production, by stimulating and activating the skin’s metabolism, as well as detoxifying and pushing out free radicals that build up on a daily basis. When coupled with Racinne’s exclusive synthetic neuropeptide SH-DP-9, a powerful anti-aging ingredient that also encourages collagen and elastin production while increasing the nutrient absorption rate, the result is skin that glows with a capital G. It’s perfect for anyone in the early throes of laugh lines and crow’s feet, or for anyone looking to target key wrinkle-prone areas like their neck or eyes. This holiday season you can give the gift of more youthful-looking skin with Youth Power Gift Set, which includes three of the best firming, anti-aging, luxury skincare products out there for just $140.

Racinne Aqua Blanc
Aqua Blanc Collection – From $27.99
The final core line in Racinne’s quickly-expanding skincare empire is Aqua Blanc, with a primary function to brighten your skin by reducing the appearance of pores and dark spots. Rare lotus flower callus cell extracts are used in part because of the lotus flowers’ ability to grow in extreme conditions. Loaded with antioxidants and rumored to have life-extending capabilities when used medicinally, when infused into the Aqua Blanc line, it helps brighten / whiten skin, reduce redness and inflammation, stimulate blood flow, and regenerate cells to stave off aging. Of all of Racinne’s award-winning skincare lines, I have to admit that I’m perhaps most intrigued by the unique mix of ingredients here that help moisturize and brighten your skin simultaneously – including surprising picks like pearl and royal jelly extract, as well as niacinamide, a potent ingredient that can tame breakouts, even out your skin tone, and stimulate micro-circulation. Again, just in time for the holidays, if you’re looking to take that dull, dried out skin and revitalize it, consider checking out the Aqua Blanc Gift Set for $115, including three products that’ll take your skin from dreary to dreamy.

While I’m happy to be the one to introduce many of you to Racinne Skincare, I’m certainly not the first person to profile them. The brand has been highlighted in dozens of prestige fashion magazines and news sources, including InStyle, Elle, and Glamour. And as I mentioned, they’ve also won awards for their breakthroughs in skincare science. I love that it’s simple to select the line that’s right for your skin type and needs, and that they consider every aspect of the cleansing and moisturizing process to ensure you’re giving your skin everything it requires to look the way you want it to. On a happy note, I’m giving away over $300 worth of Racinne products. You could win 1 of 3 of the following prizes:

– Youth Power Gift Set ($140 value)
